In Praise of the Last Minute

Needle at rest, with inquisitive snout:

A PAIR of Sockapaloooza socks!

Started: ages ago...sometime post-Olympics.
Finished: 20 minutes ago.

Post-canine inspection, sox hit the showers:
Pre-wash, they're snug but not outrageously so, and my feet are about the same size as my Pal's...the Eucalan dunk ought to soften them up so they're just right. I really like them, and they were so fun to make. I understand the knitting world's sock mania a little better after this exchange!

Love the dog photos! What breed is Stuart? A Wheaten by any chance?

Thanks! He's a Goldendoodle (golden retriever/poodle cross, but a few people have said he looks like a Wheaton.

I am so sorry Erin, school and my baby has got in the way and I haven't quite finished your socks. They will be finished shortly and on the way to you soon.

mmm.. I´ve been reading all the blogs of th beginner sock-knitters.. and I believe you are my secret sockpal!!! If it´s you, you told me by email that the socks left from Canada.. and I think that there are only two or three canadian girls between the beginners... I love the colours, the pattern, and I´m sure they´ll fit me perfectly well!
I can´t wait to receive them!!!!
